For June, our Producer Profile is Dennis Tsonis, Senior Vice President, Commercial Lines.
Dennis literally got into the insurance business by accident. He was a college graduate, not sure what he wanted to do with his life. One night while he was driving home from work, he got into an accident (the other person’s fault, of course). He called the other person’s insurance company and started to adjust the claim himself. He started a conversation with the claims adjuster, and asked her about her job and what she liked about it. Coincidentally, they were hiring for their premium auditing department. He ended up getting a job as a premium auditor, and then moved into underwriting.
Dennis started at Lovitt & Touché 16 years ago. He states he is continually impressed with the way leadership believes in hiring top talent and providing teams of talented, experienced insurance professionals for our clients. He says, “We have a team approach, and everyone is willing to work with one another for the greater good of the client and the company.”
His advice to individuals entering the insurance world is, “Get educated, and stay on the cutting edge with industry knowledge. There is always something new and different to learn in this business. If you work hard, and are a team player, you will succeed.”
Thank you Dennis, for all of your had work, and for being part of the L&T team!
